    I got behind about 4 episodes after watching it week to week. Not sure I'll ever catch up. The multiple timelines thing seems super dumb

    I think other people have said this in different ways, but the show treats the audience like an adversary to be tricked rather than as human beings that want to be engaged and told a story worth hearing.

    What's the problem, Irish? I didn't quite follow.

    One more episode to go. This has been the toughest high-profile show based on material I would normally dig for me to get into.

    Not sure what the problem is. Is it pretentious? Repetitive? Way too ponderous? Does it divert too far away from theme park territory for me to jive with the concept?

    That I stuck with it is probably in its favor, but my thoughts do not cohere.

    Finished the first season the other night. Too much senseless/pointless violence for me. For instance, the scene where Ford has Bernard kill himself - that's a fairly powerful moment, but it's meaningless. If Ford really wanted him gone he wouldn't have done just that because he can be restored, so the gravity of that moment is entirely undermined. Innumerable scenes of massacres - to what end? I enjoyed it a bit but after reading some general analysis of the second season progression, this show is not for me. Evan Rachel Wood is great and so is Jimmi Simpson (Under the Silver Lake represent!).
